Well, it looks like all one has to do is keep harping on the loss of the popular vote and get a knee-jerk response from trump. For those who want to keep jerking his (and his followers') chain, this is almost better than the 'alternative facts' thing or the tumult in the WH while the new administration is jostling to get its pecking order sorted out...

"Two people familiar with the meeting said Trump spent about 10 minutes at the start of the bipartisan gathering rehashing the campaign. He also told them that between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused him to lose the popular vote."

Said as the meeting with congressional leader, just last evening... Geez, folks, can't he get past it? So, he didn't win the popular vote. BFD Doesn't he realize that bringing.up.tiny.little.things just makes him look petty, and not just a little loony tunes?

Without evidence, Trump tells lawmakers 3 million to 5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote

"Trump himself, whose ascent to the White House seems to have only heightened his acute sensitivity to criticism.

This account of Trumpís tumultuous first days in office comes from interviews with nearly a dozen senior White House officials and other Trump advisers and confidants, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations and moments."

The first days inside Trump

This whole thing would be pretty laughable, if it weren't the behavior of the president.of.the.United.States

1. Putting periods after every word doesn't make your point any better.
2. If there is one thing the left is good at, it is making mountains out of molehills, especially with the help of the media. I'm glad Trump tries to stomp on the molehills, but his methods can be crude at times. He never ran on nuance though, so I guess you gotta take that for what it is.

I lived in CA for 20 years. 3 million illegal votes, not likely. 600-800,000? Probably.

The maturity of Donald Trump since winning the election is underwhelming.

So the majority thinks he's an A hole, so what? He still one that's all that count

Trump got all the votes from the underachieving voters and he won. He's never going to get the overachievers to vote for him so he should just shut up and move on.

Do you have anything better to do with your time than keep harping about something that is over? Have you even thought of reading something other than left slanted blogs? Do you realize speaking when someone speaks with the condition of anonymity is means nothing. Anyone can claim someone said something, without the person being identified it is meaningless.

Have you lived there recently? If you have, you might think differently. I do agree 3 mil might be a little over the top.

He probably wouldn't have to say anything about it if the media and all the leftists didn't keep screaming it from the rooftops every.single.day. (case in point, this thread)

Keep in mind, Trump is the one to make mountains out of molehills.

Why does he keep going on about the popular vote and inaugural crowd numbers? Ironically if he just shut up he would be more likely to reap the adulation he thinks he deserves.

But that mouth. That mouth. He makes it so easy.

The antithesis of a leader. Dangerous and powerful with the ability to destroy....yes. A leader? Not by any stretch of the imagination.

Should Trump get over it? Yes.

Are people who continually highlight the popular vote helping themselves? No.

There are good reasons we don't elect presidents by the popular vote.
